My question involves defamation in the state of: Florida
I have been diagnosed as being bipolar. Recently a condominium board member (whom I consider contentious and who has been responsible for violating the Condominium Laws of the State of Florida) has sent several emails to other board members referring to me as being "unstable". To the best of my knowledge this individual is not cognizant of my diagnosis. Considering my diagnosis, would I have a viable libel lawsuit? I also believe, but as yet can not prove, that this individual is also making these claims orally about me, i.e., slandering me. My real concern is that, if this individual continues to make this statement about me, people in our condominium will not vote for me when I run for our association's board of directors.
